Hello, recently my PC has officially bit the dust. Atleast for right now. My hard drive actually caught on fire and is now useless. I' m not sure yet, however my motherboard and processor might be friend. I have not checked them out being I don't have the time at the moment. I am waiting on Seagate to replace the HD. At any rate though, this is not the point.

I bought a Macbook around x-mas and I use it for all of my work. (Graphic/Web Design). With my PC being dead I simply connect everything to the Macbook including my 17" LCD. Now, I am considering scrapping the PC and selling the parts seperatly and buying either another 17" LCD, 20" or 24". If I do this, my Macbook will by my primary computer. I will be using it for Design, Media (Movies, Music, Etc), and other common tasks. It will virtually always be on, or running something. Aside from when I am on the go.

At any rate my main question comes down to this. Will my Macbook be ok as my primary computer doing everything I need. Should I possibly invest in a mat of sorts with fans to keep the bottom cool as it sits at home?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

See this thread. Lots of answers to your question appear here.

I use my MacBook as my primary computer and it's near perfect.

I do not see the need for any kind of cooling device-- the bottom gets a bit warm sometimes, but never alarmingly so.

Good luck!
